The Dead Hensons are a seven piece rock band exclusively covering the upbeat songs from early Jim Henson projects (mainly Sesame Street, the Muppet Show and Muppet Movie). The songs themselves range from a stripped down, spooky storytelling jazz-based style, to early seventies funk and soul dance music, to giddy sixties go-go rock and roll. Their live set relies heavily on letting the music speak for itself, and incorporates several instrument changes between band members. The result is a room full of 21 to 40 year-olds singing along and dancing shamelessly, as if once again in front of the tube when they were 5. The Dead Hensons are musical comfort food: a PB&J with the crusts cut off; a mouth full of pop rocks; fudgicles on a sunny saturday afternoon.
